Cramer's 'Mad Money' Recap: Riches in Cheap Threads

Cramer asked Tullman if he was concerned that with General Electric's (GE) planned acquisition of IDX Systems that Allscripts' relationship with IDX might change.

Tullman said GE would not make a change and that "both parties have publicly reaffirmed our partnership."

Cramer concluded by saying that some analysts had cut Allscripts' numbers as a result of GE's planned acquisition of IDX. Cramer said after hearing from Tullman, he believes that is a mistake.

"If it goes down, I'd do a 'mon back* on MDRX," Cramer said.

Sticking With Tech Titans

Commenting on news after the close, Cramer said the litany of tech blowups such as Skyworks Solutions' (SWKS) "total train wreck" is not a reason to sell the "big dogs" of the Cramer tech rally like Motorola (MOT).

Refco Wreck

And, of news Monday that Refco (RFX) had placed its CEO on leave and that its financial statements since 2002 should no longer be relied upon, Cramer said, "If you own the stock, I think that you've got to still throw it away." The situation is "way too big for the CEO and for the board not to know what was going on," he said.

Lightning Round


Cramer was bullish on Motorola (MOT), NL Industries (NL - Get Report), PNM Resources (PNM), Duke Energy (DUK), GameStop (GME - Get Report), Ultra Petroleum (UPL), Southwestern Energy (SWN - Get Report), General Motors (GM), Lions Gate Entertainment (LGF - Get Report), Grey Wolf (GW), FPL Group (FPL) and Chesapeake Energy (CHK - Get Report).


Cramer was bearish on Deere (DE), 3M (MMM), Penn National Gaming (PENN), Mylan Laboratories (MYL), Fair Isaac (FIC), Waste Management (WMI), TXU (TXU), Dominion Resources (D), Verizon (VZ), Alcon (ACL), Applied Materials (AMAT), Cisco Systems (CSCO).

*For all you home-gamers, a 'mon-back opportunity means Cramer would back up the figurative truck and load up on a stock.
